      Car and Driver called it a "boat anchor" years ago, and I've never been able to get that out of my head. The 2.5 is a good, reliable (though quite pedestrian), fairly efficient engine. That makes it...

      If you're referring to the OP, there's no turbo in this story; he drives a 2.5.

      You haven't been paying attention if you don't know that this story is representative of continuing problems with the brand. And many of the comments here reinforce the consensus that VW's dealer...

      Interesting about the Michelins. They're (that particular tire) OE on a number of Honda vehicles and are universally panned by many (including by me on my 05 and 07 TSX's). But.... as with perhaps...

      I'm with this guy. Christ, we've been driving for like 100 years without this backup nanny, and all of a sudden the streets are going to be littered with cats, and dogs, and infants, that didn't...

      Ooops! Sorry, missed BMW (wow, now it's a 3 way race).

      So it's like a 2 way race? Other than the Benz, what other diesel cars are availalble in the US? Porche? (oh wait.... that's VW). Audi? (oh wait.... that's VW).

      I got kind of a chuckle out of this; I have found the opposite to be true. If you do have unkind things to report and/or add here, you'll often get flamed for it (see a few of the posts here). I...

      Welcome to 177 pounds of torque in a car the size of the Passat. The transmission is electronically controlled to maximize the compromise between fuel efficiency and emissions controls. The quick...

      I understand your curiosity, but asking for pros and cons here of any VW is kind of like asking at a chiropractor convention if a chiropractor can fix your back. And I mean no criticism, but I have...

      Agree totally; Chevy doesn't build a Cadillac, and I can't imagine VW would consider revisiting the disaster that was the Phaeton. Plus, they can build whatever they want, but until they improve...

      Hmm.... this is the second very low mileage 012 TDI to show up here for sale (may not seem so odd, but remember that we're a sliver of the motoring VW public). I wonder what up with that?

      I might be, but I'm still not sure if I could drive something that I'd have to explain how to pronounce the name of to virtually everyone and anyone that might be interested. Same goes for the...

      It's a German thing; BMW, Benz, and of course Audi, use them too. Those makers supply a stud to hang the wheel on when changing a tire. You'll get used to it (and I never used the stud, I didn't...
